LP0220. ME AND JULIET, Original 1953 Broadway Cast, w.Isabel Bigley, Bill Hayes, Joan McCracken, Ray Walston, Mark Dawson, Jackie Kelk. RCA green label LOC-1012.
“ME AND JULIET is a musical comedy by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II and their sixth stage collaboration which premiered in 1953 and was not considered a success, although it ran for much of a year on Broadway and returned a small profit to its backers. The show received no Tony Award nominations.
The musical opened on Broadway on May 28, 1953 at the Majestic Theatre. Large advance sales guaranteed a considerable run; by the start of November, it had paid back its advance, and closed after 358 performances, paying a small profit to RCA.”
